Confession time... so here's the REAL reason I have not been blogging lately (No, I'm NOT pregnant! Small surgery a year and a half ago, rememeber?! But isn't it funny how that is everyone's first guess for why you're not doing what you normally do?). I got an i phone. Steve made me, it's not my fault. We had archaic flip phones until about 2 months ago. It all started on our way home from Spring Break. We missed an exit and ended up in a whole different state. We found ourselves with no GPS. No smart phone. Not even a map or an atlas. We marched into the phone store the next week and made the jump into 2012. I kicked and screamed because I knew I would love it. I knew I would spend too much time on it. I knew it would suck me in.
And it has.
I'm a lazy son of a gun! I find that because I can do all of my computer stuff from my phone, I don't make the extra effort (did I seriously just say that?) to walk over and turn on the computer to blog. B.I. (before iphone) I would be surfing around or wasting time on the internet and I would think, "Oh, here's a funny story, or something I want to say" and I'd blog. Now I look across the room at the compter and think, "Nah! Too much work."
And then there is the small matter of how nice my pictures are on my phone. I love using Instagram. I don't even know where my camera is. I'm sure there is a way to easily download pictures from my phone to my computer. But did I mention that I'm lazy? It is a whole other step I've not been committing to. And by other step, I mean learning something new. I am 40, afterall.
I'm actually sad about this. I love blogging. I love having a place to "journal." I like going back and looking at old pictures. I need to get out of my rut.
So, there it is. The truth. The embarrassing truth. I really am looking to get back on the blog bandwagon. If anyone is still reading.
